Fundraise for our 30th

Bury Hospice is 30 and its anniversary will see a year-long programme of special events and fundraising activities taking place throughout 2021.

Since the hospice opened in June 1991, the charity has helped thousands of people through some of the most difficult times in their lives with specialist, compassionate and palliative end of life care.

We could not do this without you and need your support to continue to care.

You will find over 30 ways in which you can get involved in raising funds or you may have your own fundraising ideas #30waystohelpBuryHospice
